FASB Investor Panel Adds Academia Members

November 15, 2016

Changes are ahead regarding the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Investor Advisory Committee (“IAC”). Last week, the FASB announced that its advisory panel for general issues and emerging trends will now include academia members involved with investor-related research and a public or corporate pension fund. Buy-side and sell-side analysts, stock market investors, bondholders and ratings agencies will continue to make up the rest of the committee.
